SOME OF THE STRENGTHS OF THE ADHD BRAIN


Strengths of the ADHD Brain (hyper-focused, creative, curious, tenacity and novelty)
Some of the Strengths of the ADHD Brain
Let's amplify #WhatsStrongWithYou by using strengths-based language!

Here are some of the strengths of the ADHD Brain:


Hyper-focused

You have the ability to deeply focus and pay attention to the task/s you are doing. You can easily be in the flow and immerse yourself in the experiences that interest you the most.


Creativity

You are able to make use of the 3 different networks of your brain: the default network (related to brainstorming and daydreaming), the executive control network (which activates when you need to focus), and the salience network (known for detecting environmental stimuli and determines which sorts of things tend to be noticed).


Novelty

Doing new things and taking part in new experiences make you happy. You are motivated by new sensations, variations in experiences, and how things are presented.


Curiosity

You are intrinsically motivated to acquire new information (epistemic curiosity), fascinated by how other people think and feel, (social curiosity), or maximize the sensory information (i.e. sights, sounds, texture) that are around you (perceptual curiosity).


Tenacity

You have the ability to sustain interest and effort toward your goals. You withstand challenges and setbacks to persevere toward these goals.
